last night we had our first ever Halloween party
and it was a lot of fun.
I can't believe in all of the years we have been married, we just
never thought to have one. Johnny loves buying creepy Halloween
stuff and one evening Jake and Jacquelyn had stopped by
we were just sitting outside and they mentioned that we should
have one.....and decided ok, let's do it.
So glad we did. And so now, I'm pretty sure there
will be a "2nd Annual Creepy Halloween Party"
of course I did not take many pictures....I just
really seem to get caught up having fun, talking to everyone
and then forget to take pictures but here are a few
I loved how the table turned out
I did a whole bunch of different pumpkins, not the traditional
orange ones but other colors, beige, black, burnt orange
and bunch of small candles everywhere
to the left in the picture are meatballs
below are garlic knots.....they were so good
here's a Pinterest idea and it turned out great
but then again, it was so easy to do
homemade gingerbread cupcakes
Dexter blood splattered cookies.....another Pinterest idea
We had an apple nacho bar....chocolate, butterscotch and caramel sauces
then white chocolate, heath bar crumbles, walnuts and sprinkles
for your toppings
Not pictured was queso dip, veggies and dip and salsa and chips
we also had a black punch, another one from Pinterest
and that was really good
Our son's fiancee Kayce did Johnny's zombie make up
turned out great
Jake and Kayce as Paul Bunyan and his blue ox Babe
Our son-in-laws parents as "The Deplorables"
Easy decoration....glow sticks just laying around
I just thought it was fun
We had gone to the shooing range a few week earlier and saved
our targets. Then hung them up and had a "Zombie hunting
permit" sign up and some Zombie red tap across the area
that creepy girl crawling down the tree, she's a freak!
it got a little windy and that was setting her off with her evil laugh
all around in the mulch area is the grave yard....with the fog machine
another creepy girl....climbing out the window
I had put out warm throws on all of the chairs in case the
evening got cold. The weather could not have been more perfect
but we still had a fire in the pit
this is before Jake built the fire for us
we had a creepy mirror that when you looked in it a skeleton kind of
guy popped in your sight and started yelling "get me out"
Jacquelyn used halloween makeup to write this creepy message
I'll add some more pictures tomorrow
